When we visited the Queen Mary we pulled into the car park, which was very full with lots of huge trailers and lorries, people milling about, and cables everywhere.
When we actually got on board it was the same, and then we saw the camera crews.
We were then told that they were filming the tv programme 'The X Files'!!!!
They didnt want us as extras though!! :-)
Favorite thing: I haven`t been at the Queen Mary.But it looked very impressive from the roundwalk at the harbour.The Queen Mary has a long history,played a role in the 2nd world war.Today it is a hotel and visitor attraction and can be visited.
We knew what we wanted to see so we checked at the office incase they had different packages and they did that day that are not on the website or their normal pricing board. We purchased the Queen Passport and it included Aquarium of the Pacific. Plus we payed maybe a little more tickets for the Diana Pricess Collection as a much reduced cost their web site or ticket office pirces. It was all worth it! Glad we got the tickets all ready for the Aquarium because the lines were long to get tickets.

Queen Mary Story, Museum & Historic Exhibits
Although not cruising the seas any longer the Queen Mary is nevertheless a beautiful ship, attracting many tourists, and well worth a visit.
There are staterooms preserved how they were when the ship was launched.
You'd never believe Long Beach is this beautiful until you actually come here. Really.
Come along with me as we experience the awesome sensations found only in fairy tales. We'd board a historic ship aptly called - the 'Queen Mary' and relive portions of it's haunted(??) past.... Gaze at those commonly threatening marine life through a comforting glass barrier (phew!).... And surround ourselves with art and culture through its magical exhibits and colorful fiestas.
How can anyone not enjoy living here?
Ah, living la vida loca!
The Disney Corporation bought the Queen Mary in 1988 but in 1992 she reverted back to the City of Long Beach.
She is a hotel with 365 staterooms, 12 decks, restaurants, shops and a chapel.
Favorite thing: Although this photo is dark, it is the original propeller which is still attached to the ship, and also still in working order.
